Actively Repurposing …

Repurposing is a great way to keep things out of the trash and give your home a little décor boost, with very little effort and time,  you too can you can repurpose trash into something useful.

This is my first DIY project post, I hope that you will enjoy it and share your own DIY projects. If we  all do our bit to keep things that can be repurposed, it will help ease the burden that we put on mother nature,

I saw these tomato boxes at the greengrocer and I took some home and repurposed them  for my outdoor showers .

I gently sanded the boxes, applied clear varnish just one coat, and attached it to the wall.


I used the same boxes to create storage in my farmstyle kitchen.

I gently sanded it and gave it a very light coat  of paint, instead of varnish

These boxes are so versatile, from platers to storage boxes,, use your imagination and repurpose it.

The next time you visit your greengrocer , look around you and think “outside the box”

A South African currently living and working in Qatar always striving to contribute towards the “change” where emails will be short, love letters brave and every “thank you” note be hand written! As I move through life, I want to share my experiences - the interesting places I am so fortunate to visit, the amazing people I meet and the profound moments I am blessed with. When I am not working, you can find me watching Pretty Woman or Devdas for the 101th time, I watch obscene amounts of television without a trace of shame, surf the net, visit main stream or boutique hotels, restaurants and street food vendors, specialized coffee shops or the local karak drive through stores, High end stores to 5Riyal stores, Home Interior Stores or drive aimlessly looking for inspiration for my next post, the ultimate photo opportunity or simply write about what captures my imagination.
